Two teams from the ACC will be squaring off when the Wake Forest Demon Deacons visit the Syracuse Orange.
Wake Forest is coming off a win last week, while Syracuse is coming off a loss.
At the beginning of the week, Wake Forest was favored by 4.5 points and that has since risen to 6 points. Most totals have been near 57, but I do see some 56.5’s right now
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
I expected Wake Forest to be a good team this year, but I did not think they would start off the year 5-0. This team has been very impressive so far this year.
Wake Forest won 37-34 over Louisville last week in what was a very good game. The Demon Deacons did not manage to cover as 7 point favorites, however.
Quarterback Sam Hartman was 23/40 for 324 yards with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. He has had himself a good year so far and he will look to keep up that success against the Orange. Justice Ellison was the leading rusher and Jaquarii Roberson was the leading receiver a week ago. I look for those two to have big games on Saturday.
So far, this defense has been pretty good. The game against Louisville was the first time this year where they were not that impressive. I expect this unit to bounce back and be much better against Syracuse.
The Orange have played decent this season, but they have not played any great competition. They will face their biggest challenge of the year when they have to go against the number 19 team in the nation.
The Orange were 5.5 point underdogs last week and they lost to the Florida State Seminoles by a score of 33-30. They will be challenged much more this week when going against the Demon Deacons.
Garrett Shrader was 13/23 for 150 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He will need to be much better this Saturday if they are going to pull off the upset.
A week ago, the quarterback was also the leading rusher. Shrader had 16 carries for 137 yards. I am sure he will be used a lot in the running game this week. Another person I expect to see get a lot of action is wide receiver, Courtney Jackson.
Up to this point, the defense has played pretty well. However, they have not faced an offense like this yet. I do not have much confidence that this unit will be able to slow down Wake Forest.

4* Free Week 6 NCAA Betting Pick: Wake Forest SU
Not many people are giving Syracuse much of a chance in this one. I think that is justified because Wake Forest is a much better team. With that said, I am not going to just assume that the Demon Deacons will walk in there and stomp the Orange. I do not feel as confident with Wake Forest covering here. Instead, I will risk a little more and pick them straight up. I do feel that a backdoor cover could happen and I would hate to lose that way. Give me Wake Forest here.
